MPC & The Work Partner to Launch Remote Grading Offering in Detroit
MPC is thrilled to announce the expansion of its US remote grading offering with the launch of a new partner facility in the Midwest. Kicking off a partnership with The Work, a creative production and editorial studio based in Detroit, MPC brings its color grading capabilities to agencies, directors and cinematographers, irrespective of location and without compromising expertise or quality.
Tailored around quality, speed and budget, the MPC remote grading network is one of the most far-reaching in the industry. Creatives across over 15 US and European cities have access to MPC’s global roster of award-winning color talent based in Los Angeles, New York and London. This enables them to collaborate across a range of content, broadcast and longer format films.
For their latest collaboration with Team Detroit, The Work teamed up with LA-based colorist Derek Hansen to complete the grade for Ford Mustang’s viral “Speed Dating” campaign. Commenting on the new partnership with MPC, Jesse Ford, Executive Producer of The Work said, “We are excited for our partnership with MPC and to assist in providing Detroit creative teams access to some of the best colorists around the world. Our shared focus on quality and building strong client relationships makes this partnership even more special, and we are eager to offer this world-class service to our clients.”
Clients can collaborate with MPC’s world-class colorists in real-time grading sessions via a dedicated connection to the global MPC network, all without leaving the Detroit area. “Projects are viewed at the partner sites on a monitor calibrated to match MPC’s on-site monitors, ensuring a uniform grading environment,” says Amanda Ornelas, MPC LA Executive Producer of Color Grading. “With timelines and budgets becoming even more challenging, our remote grading technology offers clients our exceptional global talent without adding cost or time to travel."
The US roster is led by Mark Gethin, US Creative Director of Color Grading, with colorists Adrian Seery and James Tillett based in New York, and Derek Hansen and Ricky Gausis based in Los Angeles. MPC’s London team is led by Global Director of Color Grading Jean Clement-Soret, with colorists George K, Kai Van Beers, Matthieu Toullet and Richard Fearon.
Existing remote grading sites in the US include Dallas and Austin in partnership with Charlie Uniform Tango, as well as in Denver with Postmodern. Additional partnerships are slated to launch by the end of 2015.
